Canal 5 Studio
Canal 5 Studio is led by a team of five principals, leveraging our combined knowledge and experience to create places of meaning, quality, and character. We are a partnership of diverse strengths: There is diversity in our skills, but unity in our passion for contemporary design.

We make bespoke architecture. It is our intent to design places that reflect cultural identity and that will endure in peoples’ memories.
